How Poor Food Choices Lead to Depression
"I'm caroline hudson and a registered and licensed citation for many years and over these years. I have seen firsthand the impact. The foods people eat have on their body and of course their brain health so last week car us started the show with a great quote from dr. Alan are gay. He's the author of nutritional medicine. That's really a science nutrition reference book for physicians and healthcare practitioners. Here's what he wrote. And i quote big macs lead to zantac which leads to prozac so if you jin tier that quote last week i'm going to go into a little more detail about that. So eating big macs making poor food choices. Time and time again often leads to digestive problems gastrointestinal problems which will most likely require some kind of digestive medication. such as an tech or prior lasek. Nexium practice said. Tom's you know we all hear about those right. So taking any of these digestive medications often leads to an inability to break down or digest your protein and that's going to result in a deficiency of amino acids and you need amino acids to actually make neuro transmitters. Those are those you know. Feel good brain transmitters especially serotonin and deficiency of serotonin can actually bring on depression and may eventually bring about a need for an anti depressant. Prescription like prozac. So being a dietitian again for over years. I've had the opportunity to observe the impact that process food diet has had on the decline of people's health both the health of their body and the health of their brain

One eleven on after having been exposed to know cars. We didn't have toilet. I i should tell that really different kinks america and my parents are both holocaust survivors. They were from europe so we never did a lot of the conventional ways of eating to begin with and from a. You're young time. I knew that i was very interested in going into alternative medicine. I went to a program with harvard. Medical school nurse practitioner. Actually and boston college. Because i knew then i needed have a standard had to do research. Look at double blind placebo. Controlled studies also understand. Where does the notion of nutrient come into play and we started women. Two women in nineteen eighty-five before anybody was doing any alternative medicine. We were the first all women practice in the state of maine. No one had done functional medicine or anything like it in the state of maine and we were equal partners. Md nurse practitioners. so we. I've been on this trail for a long time understanding that if we educate women in particular about their biochemistry in their health and start to understand. What's upstream we will be healthy no matter what age in our medical system now says many times. Here's the drug will get you better well. It doesn't get you better. It takes his symptoms away and oftentimes makes worst symptoms on the other side. So i'm passionate about this. I love what i do.

Fauci to Americans: 'When your turn to get vaccinated comes up, get vaccinated'
"House covert expert Dr Anthony Fauci says new research suggests that people who get vaccinated might be less likely to spread the coronavirus even if they become infected when your turn to get vaccinated comes up. Get vaccinated. It's not only good for you and your family and your community. It will have a very important impact on the dynamics of the outbreak in our country, she says. More research is needed to
Pregnant COVID-19 survivors appear to pass protective antibodies on to their babies
"Let's talk about this next story. As i said. I'm very encouraged by it. So pregnant women pass on antibodies to their children who were then apparently based on the early data immune to infection. So what's going on here. Well this says evidence builds that pregnant women pass on covert antibodies to newborns in. This was a new york times article. They really pass it onto the unborn because it says to newborns but they're passing it through the placenta which is a pre birth situation except for a few minutes but the basic idea is that you can apparently pass protective antibodies through the placenta For covid which is really great and this came from an article in Jama pediatrics. Which i think they really should just call jammies with. I mean better. The basic ideas that Women are transferring. Antibodies their fetuses and the earlier. That you encounter the antigen in this case. I guess they're talking about infection. The more antibody is transmitted to the fetus. And this has a lot of profound amply profound implications because what it says is is that vaccination on pregnant women may be very important and may have protective effects on the fetus. And the problem is that in all of the studies that this happened that were done the pfizer and the modern of studies. They didn't include pregnant women. In the cohort. A couple of women became pregnant while in the study and there are no adversities but There were no tests that were done on pregnant women and that remains something to be seen. So what would they learned from. Natural infection seems to be really good evidence that it'll be a good thing to vaccinate pregnant women. Yeah as i said very very encouraging news now one other thing that they mentioned in passing in the study was that none of the babies Became infected now. They can't one hundred percent rule out the that maybe an unborn child will get this. If the mothers sick but from the evidence we have so far it looks like mothers get infected and they can't pass it to their children. Is that correct that right. That's right it doesn't it doesn't look like there is viral transmission through the placenta but it appears as though the antibody can do it. So it's a. It's a very selective filter placentas are weird and That's a looks like that's the case
A psychologist explains the limits of human compassion
"Psychologist. Paul slavic says to understand psychic numbing. We have to look at how humans make decisions in analyze risk. it's not just this. Straightforward cost benefit analysis in what social scientists have have learned through observation and experiment is that We've got another way of analyzing risk and that's through our gut feelings which is a very sophisticated way that our brain can process risk information in fraction of a second week in size up a situation decide whether to run away or to approach it or whatever. You know that the problem is that our feelings are. They aren't good at quantitative assessment and our feelings are energized by a single individual at risk. What we call a singularity effect and individualize very important but the problem is that if there are two people at risk that does not feel twice as concerning as if there are one it may be a bit more concerned but not twice as much as the numbers increase. We've become even more and more insensitive. So if i tell you that they're eighty seven people endangered in some situation. You'll be concerned then. I said oh wait a minute. I made a mistake. There are eight people whom you won't feel any different. Feeling system is just not able to differentiate in a different feeling for eight eighty seven right and then as we studied this we found. It's even even worse than than this insensitivity as the numbers increase sometimes we begin to lose sensitivity. Not just that. We don't differentiate between one large number and another we care less. The numbers are so large. They're just you know they don't convey any feeling and we have a a phrase for what we've observed In this respect and that is the moore who died the less we care. Yeah so i mean it kind of sounds like you know what you're saying in situations like this pandemic that our feelings may actually kind of deceive us. In a way with with risk taking absolutely our feelings deceive us and they deceive us not only with regard to the pandemic. They deceive us with regard to the seriousness of genocide and mass atrocities. That have been taking place around the world continuously since the end of world war two and the holocaust when we vowed never again. Would we allow this to happen. And well it happens over and over again And we we often turn our backs to their. These are just statistics of faraway people. And we they don't convey the emotion that's necessary to motivate us to action so there's a lot of ways in which our feelings deceive us. Our feelings deceive us with regard to thinking about climate change. You know where we've got a major catastrophic changes in all sorts of climate affects. There's going to be hugely influential. And we're not doing what we should to mitigate or prevent this from happening right right. Okay paul so is there any way around this you know. What can we do as individuals t get beyond the psychic numbing. Well the the first step is awareness you know. And that's what i i. I see as the first implication of are working to try to get these findings known so people are sensitive and aware of these and then the second step is okay. Now what what can i do about it. And the There are a number of things i as individuals we need to slow down in our thinking. We're we're giving information like this. We need to pause not just go to a quick intuitive feeling about it but to think a little bit more carefully about what the reality is beneath the surface of these numbers. We need to pay attention to stories of individuals who are representative of the larger problem and people in the in the media needs to be giving us information about individuals and stories Not just the statistics are important. They should be there but we also need stories about individual lives that are impacted by what we're concerned about. Yeah yeah you know as a as a science communicator and a journalist this makes me think about some of the research that you've done around this right like how reporting statistics about mass casualties. Don't always move people to act. I'm thinking about your research on the infamous photograph of ellen. Kurdi the child who drowned fleeing syria. Tell me about that work. So the syrian war began in two thousand eleven. The government of serious started to attack people who are protesting for various reasons against the government and it got quite violent and by two thousand and fifteen Some two hundred and fifty thousand people have died in the syrian war. Many of them civilians and there was little interest in that and we could. We could assess the level of interest by looking for example under google searches for syria or refugees. And you see it was flat and near near zero for four years and then that changed overnight when the picture of the boy and the beach went viral around the world and you. Some people started searching for syria for refugees and so forth. We we found an even more important indicator of how this one photograph woke people up to something that they should have been alert to because of two hundred and fifty thousand deaths and millions of refugees that were spawned by the conflict there and we found that the donations for example to the red cross in sweden Were greatly Impacted by that picture and so one might ask. Why does it take a photograph to motivate us. Why isn't thousands of deaths enough and again illustration of the fact of the psychic numbing. You know that these are just numbers and we relate much more strongly to stories and images very powerful example of that. We also found that it didn't last forever. I mean over the next month the that donations started to decrease again and the searches. Google started to decrease. And what i think that showed. Is that when you have very important events like this happening. That a dramatic incident or event or photograph can wake us up and it gives us a window of opportunity that's That's very important and enduring that window. That's when things need to happen both at the individual level or also at the societal level were were officials now they have the opportunity to do something that makes a difference. We're we're seeing another moment like that in the aftermath of the The attack on the capital when suddenly were awake to right wing extremism which has been around for the. It's not that his new. And i think we've been sort of a complacent we've been very complacent about same thing with racial injustice and the black lives matter movement of of the summer in certain events were dramatic and they cut through the complacency that existed so all of these events gives us a window of opportunity when we were ready to act and s when things can happen share. You know like you said part of this is realizing when action needs to be taken an taking that action and one thing that you've talked about. Is that people have to get past this. Full sense of efficacy. Right that idea that when a problem is this big what you do. Does it really matter but you know actually does you know especially in this pandemic yes. We have to recognize the fact that even partial solutions to a problem can save whole lives as we even. If you can't do it all we should be demotivated from doing what we can do.

258: Build Your Own Kitchen Pharmacy w/ Marie Ruggles
"Having you here with us today how are you. i'm great. thank you so much. This is my favorite topic. I'm so excited to dive into the kitchen pharmacy. So let's start there. What exactly is a kitchen pharmacy. When i talk about a kitchen pharmacy it's It's global but the primary topic is really focused on immune support because you can have in your kitchen little area and actually right between my soup dishes and my dinner plates right there in my cabinet with essential oils foods teas and some targeted immune supplements Were support Either ongoing or when needed For when you need to bring on reinforcements so it's basically a shelf that's accessible and it's it's pretty stopped. It's ready to go so when you need it. You just go into your kitchen. And it's their right. That's such a key point as well for people. In one of the reasons. I love essential oils. So much is that you can keep them stocked up. You don't really have to worry about them going bad and you've got them there when you need them. It's so i don't know if you feel the same level of frustration sometimes Marie when you're talking to people about essential oils and they're like yeah. You know me. I'll get them later. I'll get them when i need them. And you're like all but if you don't have them when you need them then you won't be all experienced. How wonderful they can work right. Yes and this. That is so true. And it's the same with certain foods teas and supplements and Since my main thing is immune support Timing is everything. There is no time to shop because We'll talk about this more later on but When you need reinforcements timing is everything and timing. Is really the secret sauce to effectiveness and that's when people are really blown out of the water with just how effective these natural tools can be. Yeah it sounds like you're speaking from personal experience. A bit is that what prompted you to write these books. yes Well it's so interesting. Because i have for years toward a immune support through essential oils and I know that that was Where people found the most success when they started to get into the mindset of as soon as i have been exposed to an unhealthy environment or person. I need to think about keeping my immune system healthy and that's challenging because you feel fine at that point

How Breathwork Affects Your Brain And Helps You Experience Transcendence
"Have you ever heard stories of people coming out of meditation or breads work journey or even from plant medicine ceremony and talking about this profound sense of connection and unity and oneness this experience of feeling connected to everything around him and drowns ending beyond separation. Have you experienced that yourself and to really understand this scientifically. We need to understand the term default mode network. You see the demon. All the default more network is the name given to a network in your brain that has been shown to be crucial in normal everyday consciousness. That is when you're out and about your shopping. You're having a conversation and aimlessly browsing on your social media. Feeds the demon helps us function in the word and when it is added speak activity level is linked to mental processes such as our awareness of ourselves that is our ego construct our relationship those around us and how they perceive us and our relationship to the past and to the future. That is what happened why it happened. What could have happened. What will happen. What won't happen and questions like this. Does that sound familiar now when you are focused on a specific dusk such as solving a puzzle. Are snowboarding down. The mountain are trying to catch a moving ball. That's usually win the d. m. n. is at its lowest activity level. Now since we're talking about the brain year the default mode network has been linked to many mental conditions. Let's take the example of depression. When the demon is hyper active it can lead to excessive self reflection and creating of narratives and stories that are inaccurate or excessively negative. That's because the or active demon is always comparing our present state with something that happened in the past or projecting months or even years into the future. Another interesting thing is that the demon is intricately connected with chronic. Been being such a subjective expedience and often dime connected with an underlying emotion or memory that the person keeps going to again and again and it's hard to quantify pin because different people might have different reactions emotional connections and dollar ince's do they're being but when a person with chronic been dense do ruminate and think about there being. This tends to increase the severity of the pain and is correlated to an over active d. m. and so. Are you seeing how all of this seems to make sense. What if there was a way to turn off or turn down the activity levels in your default more network so in my research so far. I've come across a lot of studies about the effects of meditation and psychedelics on calming the d. m. n. Meditation has been shown to reduce the activity in people. But here's the catch in people who have been practicing for years together. However there are some forms of meditation such as johnson dental meditation. Meditation that actually increases the activation of demon with. She is pretty interesting right. I'll need to learn more about that now. I did come across. Many articles that suggest that psychedelics namely ceelo siobhaun contained in the magic mushroom has the quickest most profound effect on calming the and creating what is known as ego. Disillusion or the ego death. I'm sure you've come across that term before. But how does it work so just imagine that each part of your brain bleeds it particular instrument. One part is playing the cello. The other partly as violin clarinet won the flu and so on and normally each of these instruments are playing individually unbeknownst off the other once silla sivan enters it is as if the master conductor of the orchestra who was knocked out of consciousness suddenly gains consciousness and wakes up and starts guiding the orchestra and so now there is a communication between different musicians sitting in different parts of the stage who were initially compartmentalized. But now they're playing together and there's a crescendo. And what you receive is beautiful music.

"Pouch appeared multiple times over the last week making statements. That aren't just making the people that are vaccine hesitant or are saying they will never get the vaccine. Not just making them upset. Actually pro boxers are getting really pissed off because of what he's saying. I don't know if it's completely sinking in but this is what it sounded like. That started the firestorm this week. There were things even if you're vaccinated that you're not going to be able to do in society. For example indoor dining theaters places where people congregate at this point in time. It is unclear whether when you get vaccinated and you might be protected from clinical disease which is the primary endpoint of the vaccine studies that you could conceivably be infected have virus in your nasal firings and at that same time have no symptoms. Which is the reason why we recommend and say you still need to wear a mask because if you do have virus in your nasal ferrings even though we hope that when the data comes in it's going to show that the very virus level is quite low and you're not transmitting it. We don't know that now and for that reason. We wanna make sure that people continue to wear masks despite the fact that they're vaccinated so for all the people out there that have been waiting for this vaccine to save the day and bring this pandemic to an end. They are now completely shocked upset. Frustrated pissed off. Even though we've been trying to explain this for like almost twelve months here on the high wire have been showing you the vaccine trials from the beginning telling you it like this thing stops infection and we have made it perfectly clear that the end points of that trial never set out to even show that the vaccine could stop infection or transmission therefore would be useless to ending this pandemic or getting us to hurt immunity. But i wanna point out some of the power pro boxers that have been out there that are really starting to get you. Know visibly pissed off. Let's go to meghan mccain just approved what an anti vaccine. She would approve anti anti vaccine. She is this is her tweet tweet just recently. She said to say i have no time or patience for antibac- is putting it lightly. It is dangerous arrogant and put children at risk. Explain you're terminally ill child cancer. And their families who has been exposed to the measles wall suffering so clearly. She is pro vaccine. We'll look at how she's responding to. These statements made by tony vilocci this week. This is her on the view. I was very frustrated when i saw this clip. I first and foremost want to say that. I respect that great tragedy and all the pain that has come of our handling of the corona virus. That being said we are i next week will be a year since we left studio and i have been very in many different ways. So many americans have been and the fact that dr g going on cnn. And he can't tell me that. If i get the vaccine if i'll be able to have dinner with my family or dinner with i mean i don't have any grandparents left but older people of the idea that i can get vaccinated. I won't be able to see friends and nothing life changes and that. We're going to have to wear masks forever. it's terribly inconsistent messaging and it continues to be inconsistent messaging. I wanna get it if you call me at three o'clock in the morning any place at any time to get it. I want to be responsible and obviously wait my turn but this rollout has been a disaster. I understand obviously president. Trump can take much of the blame. But now we're in the biden administration over dr fauci. I think we need to have more people giving more opinions. And i honestly quite frankly i think the biden administration should should remove him and put someone else in place that maybe does understand science. Great idea. I think it has been time to replace vouch for a very long time. But megan since your tweet did. Ask us to explain our bowl. Whatever it is. That's all i do on the highway. I really explaining this to you and you clearly. You said you've done your due diligence. You really trying to be a good citizen. You aren't doing your job as a journalist. It's really easy so if you hold on for a couple of minutes. Megan i'm gonna show you what she's trying to explain that you obviously still don't get and you could have read the moment. The trials came out but next. Let's go to ben shapiro. Who has been extremely pro vaccine. He puts down antibac- all the time my understanding is his wife. Has either pediatrician. Dr that really in vaccines. Here's how frustrated he's getting. dr fauci is suggesting. Maybe we should wear masks into twenty twenty two. I have an answer for you. Dr fauci the answer is no one's were vaccinated not wearing masks and guess what we're not socially syncing. We're going back to ball games. We're going back to regular life. Were eating indoors and reading relatively close to one another because we can't live like this people were not meant to live like this and this is what's voucher saying. He keeps saying this kind of crap over and over. He saw. He needs to be fired. He's bad at this job. He's bad at this job. Burn you're right. He is bad job. You're bad at your job to because you to still understand. The problem is back seat. it's not thinking. Why can't you go to a movie theater ben. why can't you go to rest one. You're going to do it anyway. That's it mass roth. I'm sitting next to people. Were getting on with our lives. I'm going to split it here in a second. Hang on but before we get there. How about joe rogan. Joe rogan had like pro vaccine scientists on the planet on his show. Whether it's peter hotels or all the other people parading around to be pro vaccine and tell us how great the vaccine is he leaves in through explaining how awesome vaccines are. Joe rogan by the way still refuses to allow me on. Joe come on anytime. I'll debate this with you anytime. You're really smart guy. Try and tell me that anything. I've said as misinformation owned by the way he's denied robert kennedy jr. sherry ten penny and everybody else be perfectly willing to come on his show but even though bring up pro boxers. He is a pretty smart guy because they're not winning him over. This is what he had to say just over a week ago.
Reducing Your Toxic Load
"Well. So it's an internal process and it's what our bodies are sort of designed to be able to eliminate and take care of their hormones inside of our bodies that need to act and then be broken down and if they aren't able to the eliminated than they too can become a toxic load. Those are something that are internal within us that can actually lead to an increased toxic load. But we're designed to handle that. I think when we talk about toxic load the more important thing that we're dealing with is the external sources and those are the the sources of the thousands of chemicals that have been created in the last hundred years and most of them don't have a pathway of our bodies our livers very responsible for a lot of the detoxification process the liver and the kidneys the bowels the lungs and the skin are all our what we would call detoxifying organs unfortunately though these chemicals that have been created they stock pile inside of and they don't really have a way to get out these toxins accumulate in so many different ways. We breed them in the air. We drink them in our water. We eat them in our food. We leave use them to clean our homes and we use them to take care of our our personal there in our personal care products and what we put on. Our skin gets absorbed into our bodies. We just have increased burden on our systems. Were always detoxifying. Those five organs that i talked to better always working and always detoxifying. It's just that they're overloaded with the amount were exposed to these days. Now you mentioned a few of the different ways we might be becoming exposed to these chemicals other main ways that i'm exposed to toxins in my everyday life. No really those are those are the those in my opinion are the most significant ways. There's air pollution that we can't control and and this is part of it as well. There are certain things that we can't control. I can't really make the outdoor air quality. Any better than it is where i live so this is just a natural part of living that my body likely can is well. It's working hard to take care of it. But when we add all the things together that's where we start to feel that sense of a toxic onto our bodies but we also drink water in many cases that is not very clean and it could be not clear. It's clean a free of bacteria because it put chlorine in the water but the chlorine itself that we drink can be toxic to our systems as well because it's another chemical that were drinking in even the simple things that we do like breathing and drinking water and then consuming foods that are non-organic and even to a certain extent organic foods are have chemicals on them because our world is full of these chemicals that have been created to a certain extent there things we can't control and then were exposed in ways that we can control like some of us do have the disposable income that we can afford to to put a reverse osmosis water filter into our homes or we could afford to eat organic food or we can choose to to take into put on different cosmetic products or things like that so some of us have some choices. We can actually make an other other times. We don't have a choice. we are. Just it's the world we live in. And i don't wanna make anybody live in a bubble. I want everyone to live in this wonderful world that we have experienced all the amazing cultures and food and hopefully one day when travel is a big thing in our lives again that we can travel the world and experienced these things again. It's not about being afraid. And it's not about trying to control your world so much but because of this burden we have an obligation if we want to live a healthy life that we need to work on these detoxification processes. We need to help our bodies to eliminate these toxic chemicals more than we ever have in our life. And how does this toxic burden or this toxic load affect me. How would i recognize the effects. Well i think they're often responsible for their responsible for a lot of vague symptoms. There are there are examples of people that get exposed to heavy metals. Let's say and they would really notice that they have symptoms that happen and they have some pretty significant diseases that occur that would be like a toxic exposure but in general most of us are living in what i call a low grade state of eric. We we sort of get up for the day and we need our coffee to get going and we you're tainted by certain you know extra burdens at work or demands that are on us we. We often hit the snooze button. A lot of times when we're trying to get ourselves roused and out of bed we're not living at our highest potential. We're not living in that moment where we wake up in the morning and our is kind of pop open right before we get out of bed and or before the rather before the alarm goes off and that we feel energized throughout the day without the need for stimulants like caffeine in chocolate or sugar. We don't have that lightness of mood where everything is capable of coping with just about everything and then we eat and we kind of feel like. They voted in a little bit of indigestion named so many of my patients. These days have heartburn or that gerd like a reflex disease so they eat and they just feel kinda full and bloated and heavy and then we just don't have the we drag ourselves to the gym you know at the end of the day and we're trying to get a workout. In many people feel rundown and tired. These are all sort of vague. They're showing up with sort of these vague not feeling their best and feeling rundown and it is it's like i call it. It's a low-grade state of epic that we all kind of live in kind of how most people wouldn't notice it. You might also see it in some skin again. We have to look at sort of the the. The organs of elimination are the liver and the bowels. The lungs the skin the kidneys. And i feel like an missing when the liver in the bowels kind of go together. We have these organs that are eliminating and if any of those organs aren't working at their best or their bogged down then we start to see symptoms so we might see symptoms and people skin. They might not have very clear skin. It might be kind of ashes or gray looking. They might not have that radiant glow to them. That would be indicative of good health. Their hair might be lackluster. And not really shiny and bounce and bright. They might have as. I said this indigestion when the bowels and liver are overloaded people will feel sometimes have pressure underneath the ribcages and they feel like distended with their tummies when they eat. Or maybe there's even pain for some people and then like when they eat and then we also have to. I also notice that some of my patients feel puffy overall. Their rings don't kind of fit the way they used to. And their bodies are kind of holding water in order to buffer all of this toxic. Load that's in them and then one of the final ways that we can see it happening as in weight game you know. Our bodies are really really clever and or it might be waking or it could even be the the inability to lose weight. These toxic chemicals require a storage space and our bodies are so clever. They're not going to put them in our brain and they're not gonna put them in our livers in our hearts in places that are really really vital organs. They're gonna tuck them away in the adipose fat cells if the fat cells are serving a purpose. Which is the storage purpose for these chemicals. Sometimes the the body can't lose weight. I've i've actually met patients on very very restricted diets. That are still gaining weight on very little calories per day. And that's simply because their body is holding onto
So, How Does This End? with John Barry
"America dissected is brought to you by marguerite casey foundation which launched the freedom scholars award in partnership with group health foundation last fall the award is a three million dollar. Investment recognizing scholarships critical role in nurturing movements toward our freedom. I asked one of the freedom scholars. Dr anonymous roy professor of urban planning social welfare and geography at the university of california los angeles. Why her work is critical to shaping the pursuit of a more just equitable post pandemic america. It is not enough for us to survive the pandemic a post pandemic society has to be transformed one and at the heart of that. Transformation is the dismantling of police logics. By which i mean the use of policing to manage life society in america. My own work is focused on the ways in which so many institutions including universities are collaborators in this police logic and how the work of abolition means ending such collaboration and beginning processes of repair and justice to learn more about the freedom scholars award and marguerite casey foundation visit.

EXPERTS STRUGGLING AS COVID MUTATES
"Just this week. We have report of seven new variants coming out. This was on top of the ones that were already here. From december study researchers identify seven new. Us based us based coronavirus variants. Now what's interesting here is There's a lot of word words going around. And i thought i'd just for my understanding there's a strain variant a mutation so the strain is sars cov two so that's the big unbrella sars covy too. So that's That's something that we've been dealing with the whole time for this thing. The mutations are something are happening in small small processes all the time through viruses through pathogens. Very normal most of them are not even seen not even an issue but when a a variant version of the virus. That's accumulated enough mutations to kind of branch off into a separate branch and become something that's possibly more transmissible or you know. Hopefully not and. That's the way medicine defines those things an issue. A lot of reporting that is inner in those words becomes very confusing so the issue really here though is the point. I'm saying with this is. There's there's evidence that the the vaccines are resisting. These new strains and this was a south south african variant is the one. That's really been giving these vaccines a problem. According to the reporting so one of the trials that says new clinical trials raises fears. The coronavirus is learning how to resist vaccines. And this is most most of the vaccines this talks about the south african variant this one the new variants so we go back to twenty eighteen because sometimes going back a couple years before this misinformation censorship came in. You can see some real truthful reporting this one from twenty eighteen. Vaccines are pushing pathogens to evolve This really has it straight out. It's this there's a couple. S amazing quotes recent research suggests. However that some pathogen populations are adapting in ways that help them survive any vaccinated world and that these changes come about in a variety of ways. Immunization is also making once rare or nonexistent genetic variants of pathogens more prevalent presumably because vaccine primed. Antibodies can't as easily recognizing attack shape. Shifter's that look different from vaccine strains It's a fascinating article. I suggest everyone go check that out. it. It really goes into the study that they did. They took something. It was called. Merrick's disease this is a highly contagious disease. That runs through chicken. Populations just decimates hurts. Kills them eventually and what they did was they took a one hundred chickens vaccinated them hundred unvaccinated them and Unbeknownst unvaccinated foul of them and found that the vaccinated chickens were shedding lee more lethal doses of this merrick's disease strain the The unvaccinated were less lethal. Less contagious doses. Wise this a problem because there's been three tries this vaccine so far to combat this disease one thousand nine hundred seventy one in nineteen eighty three and the current one and the reason they did this research is they're afraid. This current vaccine wants that shifts. They don't have a backup for fourth. So it's kind of really paralleling what we're seeing here and again. That was twenty eighteen. But now we're having headlines that mere that in twenty twenty twenty one as we sit here covid. Nineteen vaccines could add fuel to the evolution of corona virus mutations. This is This is the this is the new headlines. We're seeing right now. What's going on here is somewhat similar to a larger and more concerning problem in medicine. Many bacteria have gradually evolved the ability to survive even by large dose of antibiotics that created. That problem has created new strains of deadly drug resistant germs. And then they quote a gentleman named paul a howard hughes investigator at rockefeller university is particularly concerned. This could happen between the time of an initial vaccination and a second shot to maximize the immune response. He says they might serve as a short a sort of breeding ground for the virus to acquire new mutations. He says there are really too many unknowns to really be definitive in positive about what the best way forward is what the most effective way to use the available vaccine dose of been now. She says so. Sure you in jeffrey. Because it's something that we sort of a different you know. Look at something that we've been talking about. We talked about in people are brand new.

COVID VACCINE SAFETY SYSTEMS FAILING
"Vaccines were coming out. We were we were promised to safety net as they were being trialled and we saw these things coming in the markets and coming into people's arms at that point and they vaccinating millions. We promised safety net and we were promised Answers and ways to To petition if we get hurt and now the headlines are showing what appears to be the truth in this array out of new york times. This is the fda as millions get shots fda struggles to get safety monitoring system running not even optimized running. So it says here the much touted system the government designed to monitor any dangerous reactions won't be capable of analyzing say safety data for weeks or months. According to numerous federal health officials for now federal regulators are counting on a patchwork of his existing programs that they acknowledged are inadequate because of small sample size missing critical data or other problems. It gets better interviews. Fda officials acknowledged that promise monitoring system known as best is still in its developmental stages. They expect it. Is it to start analyzing vaccine safety data sometime soon but likely not until after the biden administration reaches its goal vaccinating. One hundred million people in that of course is the biologics effectiveness and safety system. This shocking free has the potential to be deadly. We know that it does it. Kill animals in the animal trials whether it's antibody dependent enhancement whether it's mutation issue whether it's antifa lax or infertility issues. All of which are. Are you know i want to put. This correctly are plausible theories. These are plausible theories after one. Hundred million people have the vaccine. It's a little late today late and a dollar short if we find out that those people are at risk of dying when they come in contact with next year's corona virus. I can't i can't even stress. How infuriating is to see that. And you know i suppose i should feel good because we've been warning people about this forever but let's be perfectly clear. Can we be perfectly clear because for five years. I've been investigating this. I didn't want to destroy my emmy award. Winning television career is working for cbs. Because i was. You don't want to go out and scare people about nothing. What i got involved with was an investigation is started with an mr study and a whistle blower and the cdc that showed me exactly. What new york times is finally reporting. There are no surveillance systems for the injuries from vaccines and so for all of you. Idiots out there that keep putting down the parents that say their child developed autism or their child developed paralysis or died after vaccine and you listened to the sanjay gupta's and the swarming. Nathan's at the whol say. Oh we have a robust surveillance system and any issue. Paul up any issue that would come from vaccinations. We catch it right away. We make adjustments. They just admitted to you right now. And they're saying well because of covert nineteen vaccine didn't change anything folks all it did make all of you recognize that there's too many headlines of people dying and getting sick when this vaccine that they've no way just as we pointed out the very beginning this year the. Who lied when they said we have robust surveillance systems. There are no surveillance systems. So there's no way to know whether your child's autism was caused by the vaccine except for your own eyewitness account and your experience of that event or the you know rise in diabetes after baxter nations or the rise in add adhd in lupus and all of these things that we keep talking about yet every scientists that goes out on their own to explore the complaints of these parents that are in the millions around the world never be labeled anti boxers. They find themselves under threat and the funding being pulled from them in their university until they're kicked out of their job of investigating this force folks. We are in serious trouble here. There is no surveillance they just admitted that newark ties. Finally admits it. Meanwhile on very next page of the new york times we tell you how great this vaccine is and go out and get it. But we don't know what's going to happen to you and we'll never know because nobody cared enough to build a surveillance system in the modern world and remember. There's the system we keep talking about and they say dell spreading misinformation. Harvard medical school says it's capturing less than one percent of the total amount of injuries there were happening from vaccines less than one percent when we looked at two thousand eighteen. There was over five hundred deaths from vaccines there. Was you know sixty thousand injuries. If that's only one percent then that means they're six million injuries. That should have been reported and five hundred fifty thousand deaths. You see how this goes folks and we're already hit five hundred deaths from the covid nineteen bears one percent. How many people being murdered by this vaccine right now and we'll only know after one hundred million of received it. I'm sorry jeffery everyone. I've told jeopardy move quickly through this but it's just enough to make you lose it. It's so scary. It's so sad. It's so unnecessary in a modern world. That we have to read things like this. We shouldn't have waited is not like. Oh we finally rip up surveillance district as we got a new vaccine. This was supposed to have been in place with the nineteen eighty six. Act right this. These are historically important points to point out not only real time but also to put a stake in the ground. Say look look. We warned we told you so. Read this and give it your family. The american people. I mean let's just again simply say this is an experimental vaccine because it's experimental. There are a lot of unanswered questions included so this post marketing surveillance is essential because everyone taking the shot is part of the experiment. Now that's that's a known so as we are as a merck people walking into this experiment they are promised we gotcha. We have safety monitoring no problem. We're going to keep an eye out. Where tell you if things go wrong. We'll adjust accordingly and on the back end. If anybody gets injured we got you there too. There's a problem with that. Critics are questioning it. This is the next headline and put these two together. Because it's so important. Critics questioned vaccine injury compensation program readiness as covid nineteen claims. Come in it says in the past decade that sea ice cps contact Injury compensation program
HYPOCRITE OF THE WEEK
"We have a rare rare. Gotcha moment and typically gotcha moments come either with someone on the stand or with a hidden camera or someone insider blowing a whistle. This is with regards to mark zuckerberg and now facebook Before we go into the story it's important to throw a little groundwork down facebook Just a couple of weeks ago. We reported on this. they they Decided to kind of up the ante for their censorship vaccine what they call misinformation so they say fat facebook widens ban on vaccine misinformation The initial Band came in right as the vaccines. These experimental vaccines were being. Rolled out. now they put another kind of Increased version of this on. But what just happened was something. Very interesting project. Veritas james o'keefe's Organization they caught mark zuckerberg Undercover on up with an undercover camera. They have apparently an insider within facebook. That is feeding them. This information and This is the tweet that he put. Out project veritas. Put out a cea breaking facebook. Ceo mark zuckerberg takes antibac- stance in violation of his own platforms. new policy. says. I share some concerns of this vaccine because we just don't know the long term side effects of basically modifying people's dnr. Let's take a listen of what that actually sounded like. I just wanna make sure that. I sure some cautious because we still no long term side effects of basically modifying people's dna at ra to directly in code in a person's dna at our navy skip the ability to produce those antanas. What causes other mutations town downstream. Now as you know questioning a vaccine saying that it's going to change your. Dna was supposedly a conspiracy theory and dr fauci himself said that if you question that that is a conspiracy and he said the vaccines. Don't change your dna so the media ran with that and said that that's not something that happened so for mark zuckerberg to be allowed to question that to be allowed to debate that even questioned the fact that there's no long term safety studies like you did to be concerned. That must be nice. But i guess three billion users on his platform or harmony has at. This point aren't allowed that same that same grace in his in his mind. You know and and i know that that was an older statement. I'm on my understanding. Is it's back Earlier last year. That was caught saying that but it shows the level of hypocrisy. I think mark zuckerberg clearly is an intelligent human. Being he's built you know made himself billionaire faster than almost anybody else maybe elon. Musk is challenging. I'm not sure whether ages are at but the point being that he's being sensible there right. He's just be sensible. Anybody you know and i got ask interview just yesterday. Why do you think nurses doctors for the first time. A really you know. Fifty percent seventy percent of nursing home. Doctors aren't receiving the vaccine. I said because
THE VACCINE STORM
"Down in our approach to the high wire. This is due to the fact that we are broadcasting from texas. Where we're still under. What is now been a week long winter storm ice storm there it is. Millions in texas without power is deadly storm. Snow freezing weather reports are that four point. Four million people lost their power in texas. There's currently three million people still without power. As we're speaking. Twelve million people in texas are facing problems with their water there. Seven million people right now. That are under a boil. Your water advisory because i guess issues with the water treatment plants and over a quarter of a million people are without all water. Completely in case you didn't see it in the headlines where you're at this is what texas looked like in the news dangerous weather system wreaking havoc the worst texas winter storm in years all of the largest cities in texas have been hammered by snow and ice took the national weather service has issued a hard freeze warning concern right now or these rolling outages. Millions of texans are in their homes without power for them. Four million people have already lost. Electricity across the south mostly in texas where an ice storm and bitter cold have forced rolling blackouts the state's energy authority instituted rolling blackouts across. Its two hundred fifty four counties to prevent a collapse of energy grid. They're saying every thirty forty five minutes. You may get your power back on. They'll check your back off san antonio airport austin airport closed down today houston. Airports closed down snow and freezing. Temperatures have forced many to seek out local shelters city officials are warning residents. That many shelters are reaching capacity this tragic that power since five. Am yesterday. you'll see a blanket here for doing anything. Possible to keep the heat in the snow and icy roads have caused more than one hundred and thirty traffic accident in el paso. This car pileup left tractor trailers overturned. Take these pumps right here. There's bags on every single one. This gas station totally out of gas. It also creates a problem for first responders and their trucks. Long lines wrapping around grocery stores in austin as people. Try to get anything they need. Before another round of freezing rain we went into the store. They barely anything. There was barely any food. The freezing temperatures are also causing pipes to burst as you can see from these social media videos that means flooding on top of everything else that blackout two that are in texas or being made worse by the failure of wind turbines many freezing the icy weather. Cutting output in half and is raising questions about the lonestar. State's increasing reliance on renewable energy. A lot of people asking why was the state that's known to produce energy so unprepared for this crisis my staff most of which have no power. There's no internet through most of austin texas. We've decided to keep most of them off the icy roads which are treacherous. So right now. We're just trimmed down. I've got patrick in coal. And i are the only ones that decided to try and make it in here to get a broadcast out in some ways. I suppose this
BUILD BACK BETTER FROM COVID-19?
"Over the last several weeks and certainly since the election. I have friends and family that are really excited and feel like the world has been saved by the new administration in the united states of america. I look. I hope they're right. This this is this ship. I live on. I wanna see our success. But there's video that i've played for all of them that i find very concerning. And it's something we've discussed before but this video is not made by me. This is not made. By conspiracy theorist this video was made by the world economic forum that has been around for decades now. And we've had presidents of the united states of america going to these events and visiting these events in top people like bill gates all show up and it was. They just had this once again in davos switzerland just a couple of weeks ago. So i want you to watch. Their video edited by them written by them and their dream of the future. Take a look at this
NURSING HOME NIGHTMARE
"About care homes now in vaccination programmes Going into the care homes and the people in the nursing home facilities so let's look at the united kingdom This is a headline making them concerning dozens of care homes so it doesn't care home. Residents died with cove eight before second job as interesting way to put that you know you could also say they died after their first job right but regardless that's what the headline says Same thing happening in england. Same same kind of situation happening there. corona virus outbreak. Twenty two deaths in pembrey house care home now. This article goes on to say it is understood. The outbreaks started as residents began to have their first corona virus. Vaccines now we move on to ireland galloway nursing home hit by tidal wave of covid. Nineteen appeals for help after twelve residents. Die from the virus. There's so many of these headlines Just for the sake of the show and keeping it short. I just threw a couple in there for fact but you can go into see allies headlines happening in the us and the uk All over the place. Now let's look at the uk Chart this is the the deaths as correlated to the vaccinations. This is kind of telling a story that people should really looking at here. Now on this chart will pop that up in a second year. But there's a chart that shows a vaccination rates united kingdom and this is from our world in data and it basically shows two lines and one is the vaccinated win. The vaccinations started and the other one is when the deaths happened. And both of those are going up. So here we have it. We have in the blue cumulative deaths after vaccination you see these starting to go up they go up in line with the black line and that is people vaccinated the red line is cumulative death before vaccination you can see dotted. Line is tracking. That's where should be tracking and that was a trend before the shots came in. So we're having a. We're having a a big time Diversion that should be looked at. And it is being called look at uk alliance for medical. Freedom has sent open letter to boris johnson to matt hancock and all the fish in the uk Having an urgent warning for these vaccine related deaths in elderly care homes in it rights are particular concern is the impact of covid nineteen vaccines on the very elderly. In those in care homes or s data shows that weekly care home deaths tripled in the two weeks between eighth and twenty seconds of january twenty twenty one at a time when there was a massive increase in the rate of vaccinations of care home residents. This is happening in the us to. We have in new york. There's a headline out of new york Thirty two residents die from all outbreak at auburn nursing home. Now this is a little different. Twist on this. I'm seeing this report as well. Lot of homes says thirty. Two residents have died at the commons of saint anthony nursing home in auburn from a cove. Nineteen outbreak that began on december. Twenty first the nursing home began covid. Nineteen vaccinations on december twenty. Second where two hundred and sixty three residents hundred thirteen staff members receive their first so weird because on the other end of the world. They made that same statement in one of those headlines. It just happens that it looks like the virus started an outbreak. A day before we started or vaccinations that is that'd be talking about coincidences. And i wanna be clear to everybody that you know these are signals folks. What we're showing you are real time discussions and signals. This is worse scientists to happen. We're not saying the vaccine is causing these deaths here on the high wire. But we're showing you that somebody should start investigating and clearly people are looking into it and so are we. We're going to keep watching this. These are the types of things you do. And you know when you start seeing patterns like this. It's alarming but just to be clear. Because i know some so-called fact checkers gonna say the high wire said that the vaccines killing people in nursing now. What we're saying is there's an obvious increase in death. The average of desks right after the vaccination program starts which is really quite suspicious and say pointed out with that video looking at last week. Is it really that shocking. To imagine a product that everybody's describing making them really really sick high fever. I broke a tooth. I heard people on my airplane staying. I had to run a virus and so my husband and he said getting the backseat was way worse. Do we really think that every elderly person can handle going into your fever and shakes and and pain and fatigue throughout their bodies described to me. You'd have to be an emba to think that at least some of these cases are being contributed to the vaccine which we are seeing this rise but look science will have to prove that you're right on target these are just signals and these are open for investigation. Some people are already giving their explanation for this That is old people die. And this is the headline of what that looks like from from believe minnesota says statistic show thousands of minnesota's will die after getting the covid vaccine but not because of it so the investigation already happened. And here's the answer this week. Some thirty five thousand minnesotans sixty five and older will receive a dose of the coronavirus vaccine about one hundred will likely be dead within a month. Statistics suggest but not because of the vaccine because people die especially older people there are still cancer heart attacks and a myriad of other potential causes well one of the other signals. P- i all. I know where you're going with this. I'm going to have to steal it. I gotta steelers. Jeffrey isn't that the argument for cove itself. I mean is that what we've been trying to say yes. People are dying. Six hundred and forty thousand people die every year in america from heart disease hundreds
This podcast episode features an interview with one of my favorite humans and alchemists, Robert Bartlett.
"Often to the plan your window world of sherry. Hey there everybody's sage pop popham here founder of the school of evolutionary herbalism and i am super excited to be with my teacher robert bartlett who has been just an incredible inspiration and guide and instructor for me both as a human as and as an herbalist in that he is holding a lineage of knowledge in medicine in regards to the chemical tradition and robert is pretty incredible. Human being in my personal opinion on a brilliant humble man and the author of a number of books In the past a number of books on the way and he lives up here in the pacific northwest in my neck of the woods and just crafts incredibly powerful out chemical medicines and shares his knowledge and his wisdom. And i'm super excited to have you here today on the plant path robert. Thanks so much for joining me. Thanks for inviting me. Yeah well it's we. We jumped on a maple win. Maybe it was a few years ago and had an awesome talk about alchemy and spirits and its role in herbal medicine and and we were talking earlier about how How you have kind of been straddling two worlds right where you had your day. Job working as a chemist and and you alchemists by night chemist by day and you just retired from from being a chemist and so now you are able to focus on on the all chemical works more And just kind of made me think about how interesting that is that you're able to kind of have a foot in both of those worlds. In the way that modern chemistry ultimately emerged out of the outcome tradition and and just kind of curious. Like if you can share a little bit about what what to. You is. The difference between alchemy and chemistry and earlier talking about needing to some ways kind of new to keep them separate. But but you've also done a lot in terms of bringing them together in the ways that you have used chemistry to understand alchemy on other levels and yes. I'm just of curious if you could share a little bit about that. Because i know some people out there might not really understand what the difference between alchemy and chemistry is one thing i've had to. The two paradigms 's separate alchemy and chemistry easy to
Personalized brain stimulation alleviates severe depression symptoms
"Two studies out today suggest ways to improve treatments for depression and obsessive compulsive behavior. Using brain stimulation. Thea Pro just delivers pulses of electric or magnetic energy to certain areas in the brain. Scientists report that stimulation is more effective when it is customized for each patient. MPR's Jon Hamilton has more Brain stimulation is usually reserved for people who haven't been helped by drugs or other treatments. People like this woman in her thirties who had severe unrelenting depression, the world was slow. And gray and flat. Everything kind of tasted the same. No actual sense of enjoyment or No ability to imagine NPR agreed not to use the woman's name to protect her medical privacy. After five years of searching for help, she got into a study run by Dr Katherine Scan. Gus of the University of California San Francisco. Scandals is part of a team trying to improve deep brain stimulation, which implants wires in the brain to deliver tiny pulses of electricity. Traditional deep brain stimulation has typically stimulated in one location. In every patient without really an understanding of how that effects each individual's depression symptoms. Scandals thought she might be able to relieve the woman's depression using a different approach. So she created a map of her patient's brain that showed which area was associated with each symptom. She had an iPad and she marked off her level of depression and anxiety. An energy level in response to each pulse of neuromodulation. Then scandals used that information to design a deep brain stimulation system that monitored these areas and delivered pulses on Lee when there were signs of trouble. Our goal is to develop a brain pacemaker. That can nudge these depressions circuits back into their healthy state and keep them there. And for this patient, it worked, she recalls. The first time doctors stimulated one particular area of her brain. I wasn't really expecting anything to happen, and then suddenly It was this kind of wash off the sense of pleasurable happiness and glee, and I literally think I giggled. She says The implanted stimulator she went home with is still doing its job. Months later. The world is Is back. I'm back. I feel like myself again. A personalized approach to brain stimulation also seemed to help people with obsessive compulsive behaviors. Trade. Grover, a graduate student at Boston University, was part of a team that studied people who had thoughts that wouldn't go away or behaviors that they felt compelled to repeat, checking whether we've switched the stove off or not. Have you washed her hands enough in, particularly in times like ours today in the pandemic, Such behaviors can be exacerbated. The team knew that these kinds of behaviors are linked to problems in the brain's reward network. So they studied the activity in this network for about 60 patients. Then they devised a unique stimulation treatment for each person. Grover says The treatment sends pulses of alternating current through electrodes placed on the scalp. It allows us to stimulate the brain. And mimic the kinds off Ray to make activity patterns that are typically associated with healthy behavior, He says. People who got the treatment instead of a placebo got better. By the fifth day of stimulation, obsessive compulsive behaviors had significantly reduced. On average. There was a 28% reduction, and Grover says the treatment works best on people with the most severe symptoms. Both studies appear in the journal Nature Medicine. Jon Hamilton NPR news
Mental health mailbag with Dr. Sarah Jukaku
"My guest today is the one and only doctor sarraj mkaku. She is a psychiatrist who specializes in mental health among young people and in college mental health. She's also my wife of fourteen plus years my best friend. Thanks for doing the show. Fatemi again all right so today's episode is we're gonna focus on some questions from listeners like you this has been a challenging year obviously because of the pandemic and also the challenging political year. And then the fact that you know we are going into a holiday season that already is the source of a lot of anxiety for a lot of folks without our loved ones and so we want to answer some of your questions. So the first question is from grant vice. You have graduating medical students entering residency in these wild times. How should we mentally prepare. Hi grant thanks for your question. I think dealing with death as a physician is a totally different experience. I still remember the first death. I had to quote unquote call when i was a resident on my medicine rotation and it's kind of something that stays with you forever. Mean what i would say. In general as part of preparing for residency is trying to figure out. What are the things that make you feel whole and healthy and keeping a plan of trying to engage in at least the bare minimum so for some people that might be exercised that might be keeping in touch with loved ones. It's going to be extra stressful for you at this time because not only are you starting as resident but obviously we're in a global pandemic and that's going to be much more stress and i think it's already a good sign that you're thinking about this beforehand but trying to find out what your program offers and what resources you'll get as a resident and access to therapy or even just group kind of support sessions with your co residents leaning on each other. I think is important and if you need more help than that finding an individual therapist and other treatments specific to you and not feeling embarrassed to engage in that because this is a wild time like you said it's important to take those steps preventatively. Only i'll add grant is it's worth before you go into the thing knowing that you're gonna go into really hard asking. What are those things you want. You wanna keep a part of your life and trying your hardest within the context of a really crazy schedule to try and keep those things because they sent her yuda to who. You are caroline. Mom was originally going to fly from chicago to denver to see me for christmas. I told her we would be doing a virtual christmas instead now. She won't speak to me in thinks i'm overreacting giving into irrational fear quote unquote. She hasn't really been taking it seriously. From the beginning despite her being on immunosuppressants any advice on how to help understand that this was necessary. Not worth the risk in in her best interest. So i think this is a tough situation and i think there are a lot of people going through this and you know i don't. Nb that conversation. But at the same time the advice that i often give a lot of people are my patients is that sometimes it's easier to just kind of cut through it all and talk to someone's feelings rather than the specifics of the situation so i would personally approach it from more of a perspective of seeing that like this really sucks for your mom and you would rather be with her in you hear that you know she's gonna miss having her daughter there and it's going to be lonely in. It's not going to be the same christmas and that you know you're really sad about it too and you wish were different and that you get her perspective but that you know you really do love her. And this is why you're not coming and i think that would be better than getting into the nitty gritty about the pandemic itself. Because i think there are people who are you. Know hondo in denial but a lot of that is because it's painful to you know face that fear of oh i'm one of those people whose high risk and i'm the one that everyone's kind of putting restrictions on the most so that's what i would say. I agree with that. So i think the ability to to ask why she's behaving this way not just to try and rebut her feelings. I think is really important here and you know when we talk about irrationally right. Obviously she saying you're being irrational. We all know the facts that she's being rational but you know sometimes the thing we have to remember that people aren't rational. People are extremely complex and very emotional. And sometimes their emotions don't translate directly in so her being cavalier about. This may actually be a lot more about an underlying fear that she has so being able to dignify that fear and also being able to remind her. That's really love her and that you wish you could be with her and that you're doing all this so that you can be together next year i think is really important than And so i say don't give into the instinct to try and prove her wrong That usually doesn't help.
